MARITIME COOL CLIMATE WINE
The HermanusPietersfontein wines are known for their natural freshness and mouthfeel, European minerality, nuances of fresh fynbos spices and green apple emerging from a cool climate appellation where Mediterranean and Continental influences are evident and result in the climate changes which, for some time now, have been knocking on the front door. Wilhelm Pienaar is the CEO and winemaker for this Hermanus based wine-brand. He is committed to and passionate about delivering great Rhone and Bordeaux style wines. Judging from the awards and high ratings received he is doing a great job. The HP brand has a cult following amongst some South Africans very much like Harley Davidson would have in the USA.
